I need a button or link within the Custom Lists Custom Edit Form that points to the Current List items Version History.

I must be able to do this from SPD 2010?


You can get the version history using following URL format

 /_layouts/Versions.aspx?list={list guid}&ID={item id}

Replace List GUID and Item ID

  • Great...whats the easiest way of getting the GUID and ID in the URL from SPD? – JazzyN Mar 26 '15 at 14:00
  • I believe you can get it from the URL query string. – Amal Hashim Mar 26 '15 at 14:07

    And for a document library it's only a little bit trickier. You can't get a library's GUID from the URL query string just by applying a sort or a filter; you'll only get the view's ID, which won't help you. But going to Library Settings will put the library's GUID into the URL query. The easiest way to get the item ID for a document is by adding the ID column to a view of the library. – Dan Henderson Sep 16 '15 at 15:46
